Here at the museum, we take great pride in our abundant resources and reference materials that are available for research. We invite you to visit the Gwendolyn Robinson Research Centre here at the site.

Our historical documents, histories, photographs, and libraries are available to all researchers. They are sorted and filed into labelled binders and filing boxes for your convenience. Make sure to pop by the museum to see all these records in full. Research is always free if conducting yourself.

Photocopying Fees are as follows:
25 cents per Black & White
50 cents per Colour

If you would like someone at CKBHS to conduct your research for you the cost is $30** per hour of research. This includes looking up information, scanning and sending via mail/email.

Please note that some families will have more extensive information then others. It is not uncommon that some last names may only have a sheet or two, while others may take up a binder or more. When you send your inquiry, we will always let you know what type of information you can expect with your requested family(ies) before anything is completed. 

For any Research/Inquiries regarding our Research Room please email:

** if you are paying in USD it will be accepted at par.

    • Hi Mary,

      If you could please send this via email to us if possible that would be great our email address is and then we can answer any and all questions there, we are currently going through a backlog of requests from the Stay At Home Order so it may take a few days to hear back.

      We currently remain closed to the public, museums are not allowed to open until stage 3 and archives aren’t on the list as of right now for reopening so we don’t have dates for any reopening at the moment.
